Movie review: The Adams project
Are you looking for a relaxing, captivating, interesting, sci-fi movie? Then Adams project is it.
I mean why wouldn’t it be, Ryan f**king Reynold is in it! I’ve always been a good fan of Ryan and I have never had a reason to be disappointed. Adams’ project was no exception, as Ryan portrayed himself as the ever-handsome and amusing man we all love.
The movie begins with an adult Adam Reed (Ryan Reynold) a, generally attractive, funny good person, trying to steal a jet.
Adam finds a wormhole and crashes-lands somewhere outside of Seattle in 2022. Adam keeps spitting sarcastic comebacks even while he’s under fire in space. This scene appears great on a large screen but is also pretty on a small screen too.
While in 2022, Adam Reed, age 12 (Walker Scobell), is being suspended for the 3rd time for trying to fight a bully.
Adam’s early life
He and his mother (Jennifer Garner as Ellie) are still grieving Adam’s father’s death. Adam’s father had died in a car accident about a year and a half before, and Adam has not seemed to overcome the pain. At the same time, he is pissed at being bullied because he is too small for his age. He was mad about pretty much everything, and so he is very big with the snarky comebacks, even if it means a beating.
Adult Adam arrives at Little Adam’s home(his old house), wounded and with a faulty ship. Reynolds and Scobell are an excellent match, with similar moods in observation and snark. They also share a scar under their chin and a watch that belonged to their father.
Little Adam quickly recognized that he was speaking to his older self. Big Adam takes a little longer to acknowledge that his younger self deserves to be treated with more respect.
Because the time-travel jets are connected to their pilots’ DNA, and older Adam’s bleeding means the jet cannot get a clear enough reading, young Adam is needed to start the engines so the jet can begin to repair itself.
This enables Sorian and her brutal personal army to track down older Adam. This had to imply that they work faster and smarter to prevent time travel from ever occurring, thereby saving the love of his life. The plan was to travel back in time to 2018, meet with their father, and ask for assistance in stopping time travel.
The relationship between little Adam and Adult Adam is an absolute joy. The brilliant script was delivered with comedic perfection, an obvious warmth, vulnerability and synergy between the two main actors. It was a beautiful thing to watch.
The Adams project is very entertaining, I was invested in every second of it. The acting is superb, the sound quality is clear, and the humour is just top-notch. This is now my favourite movie of all time, and I’ll be sure to rewatch it in the future.
